Oh, Monday. You were in fine form today. No worries though. The earth did not stop spinning. There’s still tea to be had. And I’m here at my keyboard again. I am suffused with gratitude. Suffused, now there’s a good word. Might have to add that to my Bon Mots list. But that’s for another day. For now, for tonight, I’m determined to wrap up The Story.

There. It’s done. I’ve completed it. And it has a title now, “Where There’s a Will” I admit it’s not very original or clever. But it works for me. And the only book I could find with the title was what seemed from the cover to be a steamy romance, which this is clearly not.

My tea cup is long empty now. And oddly while I’d very much like to know your reactions, my own is not what I expected. I am almost more excited now that it’s wrapped up then when I began. Because, well, because I did it! I’ve written my first bit of creative writing that I’ve chosen to share with the world. And while I do hope it entertains you, it’s okay if it’s not your cup of tea…so to speak. I don’t know if I’ll ever do anything with this story, other than look at it and be thankful that it taught me I can do something different.

Thank you all so very much for coming along for the ride. Until next time…

  1. Oh Sue – Its wonderful! The note to her sister at the end made me tear up. Honestly I think you should show it to someone – and editor maybe – and see if you couldn’t have it published. I think it is publication worthy. I love it and I like how you didn’t take it too far…. and I also like that maybe it didn’t even happen to them “really”, but that they maybe just both had the same dream….
    Anyway, I’m proud of you and I am excited to see where else you take all this… you have a gift. I’m so happy you’re pursuing it with passion and dedication.
    Thanks for including me in the ride! …. now I wonder what you will post about in the coming weeks 🙂
    xoxo – big hugs

    • I feel like I just keep thanking you. Please know that each one is sincere. It tickles me to death that you’re reading my stuff and that you’re enjoying it. Tonight’s writing time activity will be spent looking for short story competitions to submit to. I don’t know how all of that works. It’s a bit odd having “published” this as a serial on a blog. Now I need to look into issues like copyrights, etc. But for now, I’m just glowing with joy that the story is done, and a few people have had fun along with me on this journey.
